      Group camping is not currently available due to COVID-19 safety measures at provincial parks

      We consider the following when reviewing group applications: availability of the group area, size of the group, ability of the site to handle the group’s camping equipment, vehicle parking, potential use conflicts with other groups, and any problems encountered during previous visits. Restrictions may be placed on the number of people or cars allowed on a group campsite.
      The consumption of alcohol or cannabis is not permitted in designated group camping areas.
